The report further stated that Vijay would be playing his age, a ganglord in his 40s, and he will have a salt and pepper look for the film. The portal quoted a source closer to the project that stated, “He plays the role of a gangster in his 40s. While the film narrative has some flashback sequences featuring the younger version of self, a major chunk of the narration will see Vijay in the 40s. He will be sporting a salt and pepper look, and the character presentation will be on the lines of Rajinikanth’s Baasha. Be prepared, as the film will see Vijay like never before.”
Now here’s the most interesting part of the report. It is said that Thalapathy Vijay’s next film is a part of LCU (Lokesh Cinematic Universe).

There is a version of Thalapathy 67 that has the presence of some characters from Kaithi and Vikram in it.” The source even stated that there are formalities, and Lokesh is waiting to get approval before finalizing the bound script. As far as Lokesh’s upcoming projects are concerned, there is Thalapathy 67, Kaithi 2, and Vikram sequel.
